hi all been trying to change my fuel filter the trouble is i crn't get the top off
have had a socket on it but it feels like its going to break the top rather than undoing it jus wondering does it just turn to get it off or do you also have to undo somthing else first ?
2.0 hdi sport 57 plate.

Use two different ways at the same time. I used the the top socket and a wrap around multigrip filter remover, combind these share the strain.

i find with the older hdi is easier to undo it while on the car. no ideal because of room but its even worse off the car unless you can safely put it in a vice without damaging it

i use a rubber oil filter strap for mine

I broke mine trying to open it :(

Best method is as mentioned above, use both directions

In the end I borrowed a mate, he spun the bowl one way I spun the top the other way and it flew off with ease!
